TRENDSETTING - An Elegant Equestrian Styled Shoot

To showcase the new Diehl Farms venue we created a stylized photoshoot dubbed 'Elegant Equestrian', which combined classic Southern elements with vintage touches, along with character unique to Diehl Farms.

A ceremony in the rolling pasture featured weathered wooden benches and cowhide ottomans mixed with chiavari chairs for an eclectic look, and an antique church window created the perfect alter arch.

A cocktail hour lounge space featured a vignette of cowhorn chairs and loveseat accented with pillows in persimmon velvet and leather, all aside a trio of hay wheels.

A feasting table inside the stable sat perched beneath a swag of garland, dressed in hemstitch linen runner and floral embroidered overlay with vintage china and an assortment of cowhide chairs and mahogany chiavaris, while a charming sweetheart table sat beneath a giant wagon wheel chandelier.

A colorful beverage station featured a peachy shade of punch with orange-sugar rimmed crystal glasses and birch paper straws.

A bountiful dessert cart housed displays of pie pops, butterscotch milks, and other sweet treats, while an hors d'oeuvre display offered delectable appetizers that incorporated a nod to the tomato farm as well.

Inspiration for the escort card display came from the farm's main crop - tomatoes; lined up inside crates and pinned with gold vellum leaves to direct guests to their assigned tables.

Even the floral centerpieces and bride's bouquet were accented with colorful tomatoes.

The models were styled in an "All American" look, with elegant yet soft hair, flowing dresses, and layered necklaces.

So many lovely details everywhere you looked!

TRENDSETTING - An Eco-Chic Styled Shoot

In a setting as beautiful as an outdoor venue in Florida, you don't have to look hard for inspiration. Natural greens from area foliage and silvery-blues found in local airplants were the perfect colors for this stylized shoot, which also incorporated a pop of bright Florida orange. We set out to create a wedding concept that incorporated sustainable and environmentally-friendly elements. You CAN have an eco-conscious wedding and have it still be beautiful!

Brittany and Elliott - A Navy and Coral Nautical Wedding

Brittany and Elliott - A Navy and Coral Nautical Wedding

When Elliott told Brittany that they would be engaged by the end of the year, and the months passed by and suddenly it was December 31st, Brittany was starting to wonder if it was actually going to happen!  She even joked with Elliott, "You know what today is?  It's the last day of the year!" hoping to get a read on him, but he didn't take the bait and he ended up just going fishing with his friends that day like it was any other weekend.  Little did she know that Elliott was thinking about waiting until the year had passed and proposing on January 1st, just to throw her off!  But he decided not to wait any longer, and he proposed as they headed out for a New Year's Eve party so that Brittany could show off her gorgeous new engagement ring to all of her friends and family she would see that night!

The couple chose their venue for the waterfront views that would be perfect for their nautical nuptials, since they love fishing and boating together.  This style direction, along with their coral, navy, and gold color scheme, inspired maritime details such as gold lanterns for décor, rope wrapped cans and jars, painted bottles, anchor stir sticks, and rope knot table numbers.  Most of the decorations were DIY projects, including the flag ribbon boutonnieres, chevron table runners, and the ribbon curtain backdrop for the gazebo.  And what better favor to give guests than custom koozies!?  Each koozie held a mason jar for guests to use at the bar throughout the evening, and they were displayed in rows escort card flags affixed to drinking straws as a fun twist for guests finding their seats!  

Sabrina and Alex - A Lavender and Mint Garden Wedding

Sabrina and Alex - A Lavender and Mint Garden Wedding

Sabrina and Alex's intimate garden wedding was all about family! Their parents and siblings were all smiles that day, and their daughter was simply the most adorable flowergirl imaginable! What's truly amazing is that they were able to pull off a beautiful wedding filled with charm and detail for only $15,000! By stocking their own bar, DIYing their own stationery, and sourcing their own centerpiece materials and decor, they were really able to stretch their budget! Because the bride favored colors of purple and green, we created a Lavender and Mint theme that translated throughout the wedding. Sprigs of lavender accented the boutonnieres, guests enjoyed lavender lemonade with mint tea, and the bride and groom were showered with lavender buds tossed from poem paper cones following the ceremony. The flowergirl could not have been cuter in her floral crown carrying a sign that read "Daddy, here comes Mommy" and although she had stage freight during the rehearsal, she was all smiles down the aisle on the wedding day. A rustic garden wheelbarrow was filled with bottled beers and sodas during cocktail hour, and guests' seating arrangements were handwritten on a chalkboard-style framed seating chart. The centerpieces were simple and perfect for a DIY-minded bride with a modest budget; some tables featured silver lanterns and flower-filled mason jars repurposed from the ceremony aisle, while others featured clusters of assorted bud vases in silver trays, or pedestal candles amidst a scattering of rose petals. The cupcakes display also reflected the wedding theme, with flavors like Honey Lavender and Chocolate Mint among other favorites.

Blair and Jake - A Country Couture Wedding

Blair and Jake - A Country Couture Wedding

There’s no better way to say "I Do" than on a breezy autumn day with a waterfront view at Davis Island Garden Club. Blair and Jake exchanged their vows amongst family and friends in Southern style surrounded by the lush garden setting. This country couture wedding was perfectly accented with vintage-style furniture as outdoor seating where guests could lounge and enjoy a mini cigar bar.  Classic beverage dispensers offered a variety of refreshing lemonades and teas. To honor the couple’s journey, guests found their seats at tables reflecting places to which Blair and Jake had traveled. Each table was adorned with flickering votive candles surrounding lanterns or tall floral arrangements of curly willow with violet and ivory stock. String canopy lighting floated above while family and friends gathered at the food stations offering unique choices such as a salad and biscuit bar, chicken and potatoes, or brisket and mac n cheese. If guests saved room for dessert, a large wine barrel displaying a stand of assorted cupcake flavors would satisfy their sweet tooth.
